'If You Can't Measure It, You Can't Manage It': Not True

'If You Can't Measure It, You Can't Manage It': Not True | DEVOPS | Scoop.it

Fifteen years later I still find it weird that I sucked down so much nonsense working in the corporate world, lots of it without even noticing. I sat in workshops and seminars and heard the most patently ridiculous garbage shoveled at me and the other participants, year after year for [...]

Shaker technologies's insight:

We focus on the particles when waves are swelling and crashing all around us.

Great employees and great leaders manage the waves all the day, unmeasured and too often unseen. They manage customer relationships in the moment and over the long term. How do they do that so well, without benefit of yardsticks to guide them? How do they finesse and intuit and consult their way to the brilliant results they achieve, without the reports and tests that slow us down and annoy us in every other professional arena? Thank God, human processes like sticky conversations and the energy in a classroom or a conference room can’t be measured.

Those human waves have to be felt.

Déconstruction d'un mythe du management mais aussi, et de manière plus intéressante, des raisons profondes qui font que nos organisations continuent d'entretenir ce mythe.

Illustrations sympas, en prime :-)

Miklos Szilagyi's curator insight, February 13, 2014 3:49 AM

I actually love this...:-))) one of the bullshittiest of all...  The "M" from the SMART... which does not mean that SMART is not a good yardstick-model... it's good to help to structure your thinking process... the same thing for performance appraisal methods... they are good framework... but, please, don't take them too on face value, too seriously...

 

The same thing about all these test-mania in the schools and everywhere... that's the moment for me (excellent article, that's  courage...) to say that the earlier methods, writing and oral (!!!) exams were much more effective, OK, more subjective but at the end of the day, we are human and could be something more subjective than a human being?! Why do we try to hide this, fear of this? And try to robotize it? By that we are just stripping from all these processes  the only interesting part, the "human" element... They are dead seriously objective, only,  they are good for nothing or very very little...

The Architecture of Open Source Applications

The Architecture of Open Source Applications | DEVOPS | Scoop.it

Architects look at thousands of buildings during their training, and study critiques of those buildings written by masters. In contrast, most software developers only ever get to know a handful of large programs well—usually programs they wrote themselves—and never study the great programs of history. As a result, they repeat one another's mistakes rather than building on one another's successes.

Our goal is to change that. In these two books, the authors of four dozen open source applications explain how their software is structured, and why. What are each program's major components? How do they interact? And what did their builders learn during their development? In answering these questions, the contributors to these books provide unique insights into how they think.

If you are a junior developer, and want to learn how your more experienced colleagues think, these books are the place to start. If you are an intermediate or senior developer, and want to see how your peers have solved hard design problems, these books can help you too.

Simplicity vs. Robustness - Demonstrated On Lock File Handling

Simplicity vs. Robustness - Demonstrated On Lock File Handling | DEVOPS | Scoop.it
Today we will discuss a conflict between the design values of keeping things simple, stupid (KISS) and robustness, between underdesign and overdesign.
Shaker technologies's insight:
Conclusion

Both KISS and robustness are important objectives and will often be in conflict. Making your code more robust than necessary makes it too complex and costs time and has an (missed) opportunity cost. Making the code too simple costs you or its users time due to troubleshooting. Achieving the right balance requires experience and iterating towards it.

8 Ways to Use Docker in the Real World

8 Ways to Use Docker in the Real World | DEVOPS | Scoop.it
Before VMs, bringing up a new hardware resource took days. Virtualization brought this number down to minutes. Docker, by creating just a container for the process and not booting up an OS, brings it down to seconds. This is the enabling technology that has had Google and Facebook using containers.

You can create and destroy resources in your data center without worrying about the cost of bringing it up again. With typical data center utilization at 30%, it is not difficult to bump up that number by using a more aggressive allocation of resources. And, the low cost of bringing up a new instance allows for a more aggressive allocation of resources.

How to Design Programs, Second Edition

This material is copyrighted and provided under the Creative Commons CC BY-NC-ND license [interpretation].
Shaker technologies's insight:
Bad programming is easy. Even Dummies can learn it in 21 days.


Good programming requires thought, but everyone can do it and everyone can experience the extreme satisfaction that comes with it. The price is worth paying for the sheer joy of the discovery process, the elegance of the result, and the commercial benefits of a systematic program design process.

The goal of our book is to introduce readers of all ages and backgrounds to the craft of designing programs systematically. We assume few prerequisites: arithmetic, a tiny bit of middle school algebra, and the willingness to think through issues. We promise that the travails will pay off not just for future programmers but for anyone who has to follow a process or create one for others.

RESTful Web APIs

RESTful Web APIs | DEVOPS | Scoop.it

RESTful Web Services is a 2007 book by Leonard Richardson and Sam Ruby. It was the first book-length treatment of RESTful design, and the predecessor to RESTful Web APIsRESTful Web APIs was designed as a complete replacement for RESTful Web Services, and in our opinion there's no longer any need to buy RESTful Web Services.

But that's no reason to let RESTful Web Services disappear altogether. The book is now of historical interest, and most of its content is still applicable. The authors and publisher have agreed to make RESTful Web Services freely available under a Creative Commons license as part of O'Reilly's Open Book Project.

Boot2docker... docker sur un OS léger

Boot2docker... docker sur un OS léger | DEVOPS | Scoop.it
Basé sur une distribution Tiny Core Linux faite spécialement pour docker, boot2docker tourne à 100% en RAM, pèse 27Mo et démarre en environ 5 secondes (au moment de la rédaction de cet article - des améliorations sont en cours). Il permet de démarrer rapidement docker sur OSX... sans avoir à installer une VM de plusieurs centaines de Mo.

Pour les utilisateurs de distribution Linux supportant LxC l’installation de docker directement sur l’OS Host semble préférable à moins qu’ils souhaitent comme moi encapsuler un maximum leurs machines de développement. Pour les environnements de production, boot2docker peut se présenter comme une alternative légère à CoreOS même si l’utilisation en production de boot2docker est pour l’instant très prématurée.
